Woven Horizontal Herringbone is another variation of the classic ‘herringbone’ patterns. In this variation, the zig-zag lines go diagonally to form a row of arrows. Visually, it is also similar to the Herringbone Twill stitch.
The Woven Horizontal Herringbone knitting pattern involves a lot of slip stitches, and it creates fabrics that are perfect for making pillows, bags, or anything else that needs denser material.
